Playing in his 14th NBA season at age 34, Dallas Mavericks forward Richard Jefferson can still get up.
At 15.1 minutes per game, Jefferson is receiving less playing time than he did last season with the Utah Jazz (27 per game), but he's still proven capable of being a solid contributor when needed. Getting the start on Sunday and playing 33 minutes, he contributed a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, scoring in double figures for the first time since Feb. 5.
Kidd-Gilchrist scored 15 points and added six rebounds for the Hornets.
The Mavericks won 92-81 to move to 38-20, sixth in the Western Conference.
